Our trip to Eco Retreats exceeded all of our expectations. Such an amazing place to connect with nature and escape the chaos of city life. No phone signal for a couple of days was exactly what we needed and in such a beautiful setting. Initially driving up the forest track to get to the yurt you knew this was going to be a special place. The amenities were fantastic meaning we only needed to bring a bag each and food and drink. We only booked for 3 nights but I wish we had booked for longer. There is so much to do in the area including the beaches and the unreal Cadair Idris walk. But also walks around the site if you don’t fancy leaving and want to relax. Angus and Florence were very welcoming. Can’t wait to visit again!

We were looking for a break to completely escape from it all and Eco Retreats did not disappoint! The most beautiful yurt deep in the forest with just the right amount of comforts and back to basics. Our days were spent walking in the beautiful surrounding forests and hills, bathing in the outdoor bath with a magical view, star gazing, cooking food on the campfire and completely switching off from the world. Heaven! We stayed in the Ash Valley yurt which has an incredible view and is completely secluded, you’re able to park really close by so it’s easy enough to transport everything to your yurt. Make sure you take everything with you though in terms of food and supplies - you won’t want to leave once you’re there! The nearest town is also around a 30 minute drive away. The yurt itself is really cosy and comfortable, and Margaret and the team are lovely and helpful - they have created something very special. We already can’t wait to go back....

A wonderful, relaxing and peaceful birthday weekend. Nothing I say can do this site justice, the outstanding beauty of the surrounding area, the soul restoring peacefulness and the comfort of yurt must be experienced first hand! Wonderful hosts greeted us and showed us to our River Yurt, the local sheep kept a watchful eye over us during our stay and we even had a visit from a common lizard. I spent so much time just sitting and watching the birds flit around the trees, and even made friends with a robin! A perfect, perfect weekend!

We have just returned from a 3 night stay here celebrating a milestone birthday, staying at the Ash Valley Yurt. This place is mesmerising, so good for the soul. We woke up to a view of low lying clouds sweeping over the mountains every morning. Every night we'd fall asleep to the sounds of a waterfall nearby. The outdoor bath is magical - you don't want to get out! We took our young children with us - they loved 'shepherding' the sheep every morning, and enjoyed hikes up the mountain. Margaret and her children greeted us on the first day and they were a pleasure to be around, thanks for checking in on us! There is limited phone reception in the Ash Valley Yurt, although we recommend switching off phones! We loved it so much that we'd love to come back next year. Thank you so much, what a discovery!
